Granted I've always been an opera nut, but this year I am particularly looking forwards to the season, which is set up with a few twists.
15 August 2010: AIDA by Guiseppe Verdi
I'm not gonna write too much about the opera itself, that can quite easily be read elsewhere, e.g. on wikipedia . What is special about this one is the location. Its played outdoors on Oscarsborg Fortress, most famous for, on April 9, 1940 sinking the German heavy cruiser Blücher.
So I'm hoping for some decent weather on this one, to fully enjoy the play against the castle walls.
So, for the more traditional locations, in the Oslo Opera house where the other 7 are played.
31 August 2010: Tosca by Giacomo Puccini
23 October 2010: The wedding of Figaros by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
17 December 2010 Eugene Onegin by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky
20 January 2011 Orphée by Philip Glass
25 February 2011 Lulu by Alban Berg
6 June 2011 Peter Grimes by Benjamin Britten
